Truck Accidents Attorneys Representing Injury Victims

Accidents that involve commercial trucks, such as big rigs, semis, eighteen-wheelers or tractor-trailers can be incredibly dangerous—even fatal.  In many instances, these serious motor vehicle collisions are preventable, except that someone decided to put other drivers and passengers in danger.  Common causes of accidents involving big trucks include:

  • Truck drivers losing control of large vehicles while driving dangerously
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failing to maintain safe speeds during hazardous weather conditions
  • Driving without the proper amount of sleep (a.k.a. drowsy driving)
  • Neglecting to properly check blind spots
  • Driving a truck with defective equipment  such as worn breaks or tires
  • Operating a tractor-trailer that is improperly or over loaded
  • Providing inadequate training to drivers before sending them out on the roads

Georgia Law Authorizes Compensation for Truck Accident Injuries

Trucking companies that operate in Georgia have a duty to ensure that their fleet of vehicles is well-maintained and ready for the road, and also that their employees have safe driving records and aren’t driving while fatigued or under the influence.  If they fail to take reasonable care to prevent accidents, trucking companies and their insurers must compensate injury victims who are hurt or suffer economic losses after being involved in a collision with their drivers.
